Post It's time for a step up from Windows Movie Maker...

I can't do it anymore... Can someone recommend another program that has a good selection of features? WMM got old after the first week and I want to start doing some more advanced effects. I'd prefer something free/open source if there's anything good :D

Anyone?

Personally I use Corel VideoStudio 12 and it sucks cos I have no idea how to make widescreen videos and it's impossible to multitask with because it fills the screen and takes ages to switch from or to.

So I'm also searching for a decent video editor, avoid Corel VideoStudio 12. :lol:

RE: Open source video editors

They're shit, unfortunately. If you have the nous, a worthy use of someone's time would be to contribute to one like Pitivi. They have nothing yet (except cutting/splicing) and really need help...

Kdenlive is the most feature full one, but it crashes whenever it's bored or you want to save something. Don't know what it's like under windows, though; you probably have to reverse the polarity of the neutron flow or something.

How about Pinnacle Studio? I used it to create a nice collage video. It's really easy to use and also quite advanced at the same time.
